of the "washington post." welcome to you both. president obama pledged on september 12 to bring the killers to justice. siobhan, starting with you. how far along is the u.s. in the investigation, the kind of investigation to have to do that some >> they're fairly far along in terms of being able to identify some individuals through either tracking conversations or through video that is picked up. photographs and the like. so they have identified a number of individuals. they are trying to figure out now what the next steps are to deal with those individuals. much they've discovered that they hail from a number of different militant groups >> warner: you had a story today about an egyptian-born militant who was freed last year after the egyptian revolution from an egyptian prison >> right. he's a former egyptian islamic jihad operative. he was in the sights of the spy agencies prior to this attack that they have discovered that some of the militants in his network because he has set up these training camps in libya because you have more freedom of movement there have turned up as having take
relations. welcome to you both. starting with you, richard haas, let's take an overview. is the obama foreign policy defendable four years later? >> for sure it's defendable. it's not to say it's flawless. but he can point to obviously the killing of osama bin laden. he can point to, among other things, the attempt to improve relations with china and russia. obviously he's got the uwe united states out of iraq. the united states after going up has now come down to some extent in afghanistan. the middle east, even though it's turbulent, is more open than it was. so i think the president in general can point to some areas where he moved forward and some areas obviously his critics will say where he movedded back. all in all it's a defense i believe and defendable record. >> ifill: i want to walk through some of that piece by piece. referencing the president's speech today, he turned over a big chunk of it to talking about the difference between railing against or speaking out against violence... violent extremism versus protecting free speech. why was so much devoted to that topic? >> g
from the u.n. stage, the president and mrs. obama targetedded female voters in a tapedded appearance on abc's "the view." they both focused again on what is best to revive the economy. >> we grow fastest when the middle class is doing well and when folks who are trying to get in the middle class have ladders of opportunity. that's a different vision about how we move the country forward. ultimately it will be up to the american people to make a decision about who has got the better plan. >> i'm voting for him. reporter: this morning republican mitt romney was welcomedded warmly at the clinton global initiative. the former president praised him for supporting the americorps program. >> governor, i thank you for being here. the podium is yours. >> thank you, mr. president. reporter: romney returned the compliment with a joking reference to clinton's speech nominating president obama at the democratic convention. >> if there's one thing we've learned in this election season, by the way, it is that a few words from bill clinton can do a man a lot of good. all i got to do now is wait a co
: with its own tv ad charging obama is weak on trade against china. overthe weekend both candidates used dueling interviews on cbs's "60 minutes" to make their case. romney was pressed to provide specifics on economic policy. >> well, i can tell them specifically what my policy looks like. i will not raise taxes on middle-income folks. i will not lower the share of taxes paid by high-income individuals. and i will make sure that wee bring down rates, we limit deductions and exemptions so we can keep the code and we encourage growth in jobs. >> and the devil is in the details though. what are we talking about'? the mortgage deduction? the charitable deduction. >> the devil is in the details. the angell is in the policy which is creating more jobs. >> you have heard the criticism, i'm sure, that your campaign can be vague about things. i wonder if this isn't precisely one of those things. >> it's very much consistent with my experience as a governor. which is if you want to work together with people across the aisle, you lay out your principles and your policy. you work together with them.
think it is. i think that's one reason these debates become so important. before debates usually both campaigns talk about how terrible their guy is at debating and what a master debater the other guy is to try to set expectations. that is not what you see happening now. the obama people are talking about what a good debater governor romney is, but the romney people are talking about a good debater governor romney is. that is because they need to reassure their supporters that this race isn't over. it's still close. he can turn it around and the debates will be an opportunity to do this. >> woodruff: this is a different period of expectation setting, stu, than what we normally see. >> a little bit. i think susan is exactly right. i saw robert gibbs on television a couple days ago. he was talking about mitt romney has debated so much times and the president hasn't debated in four years. i think they are trying to lower expectations but you don't hear that same thing from the romney camp. some of this is a need, a desire, to create some momentum on the part of the challenger when there
